Joey Bosa went from stressful car wait to long-lasting Charger

Joey Bosa was under stress last week when his agent and the Chargers were approaching the final hours for striking a deal in time for the first day of training camp.

He agreed to terms on a five-year, $135 million contract extension, but instead of calling his father to deliver the li...

Alexander: Terry Cannon was a baseball subversive, in the best of ways

If you believe in heaven, just know that it is a quirkier, more passionate and more creative place today. Terry Cannon, a librarian by occupation, a man of many and varied interests and the creator of what Jim Bouton called the “People’s Hall of Fame” in Pasadena’s Baseball Reliquary, lost his battle with bile duct cancer Saturday. He was 67. Baseball was only one of his interests, though the Reliquary and the companion Institute for Baseball Studies at Whittier College were the things for which...

Cautious hope brews amid LA County’s dip in daily deaths, cases, hospitalizations

“Cautious optimism” was the phrase of the day on Monday, July 3, as Los Angeles County public health officials outlined a drop in counts for deaths, hospitalizations and positive cases — all of which would lead, if the trend continues, to the county getting off the state’s monitoring list and easing toughened health restrictions on education, places of worship and businesses.

The world sees a team that missed the playoffs last season and then gave up one of the NFL’s most accomplished ballcarriers, among other stars of a Super Bowl run the year before.
